California Senator Dianne Feinstein, at the Senate confirmation hearing for Senator Jeff Sessions, voiced her concern that if he is approved as Attorney General, he would overstep his authority and prevent child sacrifice. Of course, Feinstein did not use the term “child sacrifice,” preferring to utilize the euphemistic term “choice” instead. Such word substitutions do indeed make the killing process sound kinder. After all, if she had said, “I want to make certain that Jeff Sessions doesn’t overstep his authority and prevent mother’s from having their child dismembered and/or chemically burned to death and then tossed away like garbage,” that would sound just barbarous. But of course, it IS barbarous no matter how what oblique words are used to describe it.
We don’t like to think that civilized people of our modern era have anything in common with the ancient and extremely cruel Canaanites of Old Testament infamy, so we couch OUR barbarity in inoffensive language and think we escape the disgrace and eventual consequences of our own sadistic rituals. Isn’t “choice” always a good thing, a very American thing, after all?
The nation of Israel, in direct disobedience to God, eventually adopted the cruel Canaanite ritual and sacrificed their babies to the Canaanite god Moloch. It was an extremely cruel and evil practice. Matt Slick at CARM.org wrote in “Moloch, the ancient pagan God of child sacrifice”:
The ancients would heat this idol up with fire until it was glowing, then they would take their newborn babies, place them on the arms of the idol, and watch them burn to death. I can’t help but compare today’s abortion massacre to the sacrifice of children by these ancient pagans. In both, innocent life is destroyed for the gain of the parent.
Though we recoil in horror at this child sacrifice, it was considered a sacred privilege to give one’s child to Molech. As Matt Slick reminds us, King Solomon erected an altar where the Israelites would sacrifice their own children to Chemosh and Molech!
Then Solomon built a high place for Chemosh the detestable idol of Moab, on the mountain which is east of Jerusalem, and for Molech the detestable idol of the sons of Ammon. 1 Kings 11:7
King Solomon? Incredible, no?
Some may object to our conflating this ancient dark religious practice to a secular modern medical practice. Actually, however, we don’t have to make a leap at all to conflate the two – the CEO of Planned Parenthood and the religious left makes the connection for us. It is clearly stated in those terms in “More Than 20 Faith Leaders Bless Planned Parenthood’s New D.C. Clinic”:
As Planned Parenthood fights attacks from Congressional Republicans, more than 20 local faith leaders came together to bless the organization’s newest health clinic in D.C. on Tuesday.
“In almost every message to our staff, I talk about our doing sacred work,” says Dr. Laura Meyers, president and CEO of Planned Parenthood of Metropolitan Washington. “This confirms the sacredness of the work we do.”
Planned Parenthood is very prolific in its “sacred work,” though for some odd reason it chooses to vastly downplay the vast scope of its holy efforts and ‘fudges’ the number of child sacrifices it facilitates.
“Debunking Planned Parenthood’s “3%” Abortion Myth” notes that Planned Parenthood performs over 300,000 abortions a year! In 2014, out of 954,000 abortions across the nation, 323,999, or about 1/3 of the abortions performed in the US were done by Planned Parenthood. That is approximately 37 abortions per hour! 1 in 8 women who enter the temple of Planned Parenthood where, as PPs CEO Dr. Laura Meyers stated, “sacredness” is the work they do, will have their innocent baby dismembered or chemically burned to death.
These children suffer terrible agony in the sanctified process. The evil Molech would be so proud! The only difference between the Canaanite baby sacrifice and Planned Parenthood’s holy work is that Molech’s work was done in the open, where the parents would actually watch the terrible burning take place, and witness the child’s agony. The womb is a more private death chamber, which is a good cover for modern sensibilities, thus preserving our civilized vision of ourselves.
Years ago, Christians warned that abortion would inevitably coarsen our culture, and lead to people acquiring a far more callous attitude towards killing others, even those outside the womb and in the open. Now, after 44 years of legalized murder of the tiniest humans, NPR wonders “Why Do Parents Kill Their Own Children?” Our answer to the question would have to be, “Why Not?” How can it be wrong to kill one child, while we have not just a right but a sacred right to kill another child? What if the older child is unwanted, or a burden on the mother? Shouldn’t she have the sacred right to kill it? Besides being bigger, how is the child materially different from the babe in the womb? Hillary Clinton answered that question without equivocation, “Unborn Children Don’t Have Constitutional Rights.” Ahhhh. Constitutional rights are not conferred (by the government) until the child has made a geographical move from inside the womb to outside the womb. And here we thought our Constitutional rights came from God, but no, the government hands those “rights” out like Jelly Beans, as it sees fit. And of course, some leftists, such as Pete Singer, professor of Bioethics at Princeton University, propose that a parent should have the right to kill a child for two years after it is born! Not to worry – that could never happen, surely! But IF the law does eventually say it is OK (or even sacred!) to kill a 2-year-old, then why not a 5, 10, or 20-year-old? Of course, it would be impractical to kill the average 20-year-old, because they might fight back, wrongly assuming that no matter what the law decrees, they have a right to life!
None of this is really a surprise. Sadly, it’s just part of the downward spiral that happens to a society that forgets God.
